and maybe knox is being prosecuted as part of a secret plot to dismantle the perugia public transit system

not that i am following the amanda knox case at all, but this is a pretty weird headline. i mean, isn't jessica rabbit supposed to be a cartoon femme fatale? a quick google shows that i'm not the only one to think so.

it's also pretty strange that an italian defense lawyer would rely on an allusion to a 23 year old american film. does "who framed roger rabbit?" have that much of a following? i mean, will the average italian appellate judge have any idea who jessica rabbit is? i would not risk making a reference like that to an american judge.
